Unexpected Journey


Shepherd's Pathway to Success: Your journey toward professional and personal success

Shepherd University takes students on an extraordinary academic journey to master the knowledge and skills necessary for personal and professional success. The Shepherd path begins with a liberal arts education, advances to a nationally recognized degree, and leads to outstanding career preparation.

Students experience the power of the liberal arts program beginning with their first academic experience. But what are the hallmarks of a liberal arts education? At Shepherd it means that students are encouraged to explore a wide range of subjects and discover how different disciplines intertwine. It means that throughout their course of study they work on building the skills that are required for success in the 21st century, including writing, critical thinking, and collaboration. And finally, it means that they apply the knowledge and skills they acquire from their coursework in real-world settings.

Shepherd students bring liberal arts concepts to life through community service, performance, leadership opportunities, and active learning experiences. As a result, Shepherd graduates are strong communicators, team leaders, creative thinkers, problem solvers, and well-rounded, experienced individuals. The journey that starts at Shepherd University is a remarkable one: it supports students as they develop their unique interests and strengths and helps them use their talents to make their mark on the world.
